My lad's MP3 player has been working fine but now when he tries to turn it on the screen flashes blue then turns off. In addition the device is no longer being recognised when plugged in to the USB port.
Any ideas please. I've searched Google and it appears to be a common problem but I have not been able to find the solution.
Halmer you say .... In addition the device is no longer being recognised when plugged in to the USB port.
Have you checked in My Computer to see if it is listed ?
If you can get it to work via the usb,the battery option will not apply as the usb will power the mp3 player. I would suggest if the usb works after looking in My Computer,is to then look for a firmware update if one is availble for your model.
Have you also checked in Device Manager for any yellow exclaimation marks under Universal Serial Bus Controllers.If you have any Yellow exclaimation marks uninstall them and reboot your pc.Xp will find the drivers and reinstall them.
I have an hdd40, which throws up hdd format error when starting up. I can't get xp to recognise the drive for more than a second or two, and have lost the original disc. I can't get it to format, or reformat.
